Dynamic and inspiring
The rich history of Landgoed de Horst dates back to 1835. A man of independent means from Zeist purchased an old farm and the surrounding land. He had a long mansion built on the site. After ownership of the estate changed hands several times, it came into the hands of Stichting Kerk en Wereld (Church and World Foundation) after the Second World War. De Baak acquired it from the Foundation in April 2001.
De Baak used this unique location to establish a knowledge village where the focus is on learning and working in an inspiring, artistic and natural environment. The original country house was restored and has become the primary meeting place of Landgoed de Horst.

Landgoed de Horst has 30 meeting rooms spread across seven unique buildings in a beautiful park and 24 hectares of woodland. Each building has its own warm and authentic atmosphere, with distinctive, multifunctional rooms with many stylistic features.
All of the meeting rooms at Landgoed de Horst are spacious, have plenty of natural light, comfortable chairs and are furnished for working and learning. Our learning rooms are not standard meeting rooms, and contribute to an inspiring gathering.
The essential office supplies and equipment are provided in each room. And each meeting room is equipped with the latest means of communication and good audiovisual equipment.
Most of the meeting rooms are located on the ground floor and have their own outdoor patios where you can enjoy the changing seasons. Nature stimulates all the senses and inspires out-of-the-box thinking.
At Landgoed de Horst you rent a meeting room and also get the use of an entire estate where you can sit and relax on the lawn in the sun or take a walk in the woods. Weather permitting, an outdoor program is also possible.
We offer a number of options for bringing all or part of the gathering outside. For example, you can train in our woodland or give an outdoor presentation on the roof of our theater. Learning and presenting outdoors provides an extra stimulus and inspiring dimension to a gathering or training program.
